Description: Pre-Columbian, Peru, Chimu, ca. 1000 to 1400 CE. A lively blackware vessel created by the Chimu culture of ancient Peru, depicting a dramatic jaguar head that presents an especially expressive countenance with its large, pvoid eyes, straight nose, wide mouth sporting jagged, gnashing fangs framed by arched whiskers, and alert pointed ears. The fierce expression of this jaguar jar suggests that the artist who created this vessel was more interested in capturing the powerful symbolism associated with this formidable 'king of beasts' rather than putting forth a naturalistic representation. A fabulous piece! Size: 8" W x 9.75" H (20.3 cm x 24.8 cm)

Provenance: Ex - Reid collection acquired before 1990
